Since launching my boutique literary agency almost ten years ago, I’ve represented the Baillie Gifford Prize-nominated, TLS Book of the Year Minarets in the Mountains by Tharik Hussain, the number one bestselling guide to Paddling Britain by Plastic Patrol campaigner and MBE recipient Lizzie Carr, the Amazon number one bestseller in sea kayaking, Moderate Becoming Good Later by Toby and Katie Carr, the Stanford Lonely Planet Adventure Travel award-shortlisted Me, My Bike and a Street Dog Called Lucy by Ishbel Holmes, and internationally successful novels such as The Visitors by Catherine Burns and The Note Through the Wire by Doug Gold.

Many of my agency clients start out by working with me as an editor to develop their idea or polish their manuscript before attempting to find a publisher; some work with me as an editor because they wish to self-publish; and I also edit books for publishers. Books I’ve edited recently include Always Pack a Candle by Marion Crook, winner of the Lieutenant Governor’s Community History Award and a BC bestseller for a year; former MasterChef contestant Dev Mukherji’s independently published Journey to Flavour; and the English translation of The Book of Katerina by Auguste Corteau, a finalist for the EBRD Literature Award.
